Don't judge. So I was just playing through the different challenge modes of .993, with fun in mind, focusing on AoMs. Any suggestions on strategy? I was wondering if vampyre works on AoMs and was working towards that, when fate gave me a true bounty, and I was edging my way towards whizkid so I could assemble The Biggest Fucking Gun, but alas... Decisions, decisions... And I was nervous as hell...  -.-

 Before him 68 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 47 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 4 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 8 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 8 souls claim to have killed him...
 3 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 5 killed the bastard and survived.

I just finished Masochist Gold today, so I actually remember what I did. Personally I feel that Intx2 is the way to go.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
I started off going for Intx2. The HA visit was to grab some early xp despite the fact I didn't have a combat shotgun (I did have ~5 shotguns though) and to grab the chaingun. The plan I had for weapons was a tactical shotgun, gattling gun and high powered plasma rifle, giving me a use for mods and saving me from having to get WK. The shambler from Hell's Armory gave me a firestorm pack so I slapped it on a plasma rifle. After the Hell gate I started running low on ammo, but part of the problem was going for YAAM which doesn't need to be done. The sniper pack I found on floor 17 really helped when I was running out of ammo. Putting it on a rocket launcher with Intx2 is what got me through the Lava pits, since I was just about out of any other ammo at that point. It's worth noting that whenever I went down a set of stairs I had both plasma rifles in my hands so if I ended up in sight of anything nasty I could kill it quickly.

Life gets a lot better after Intx2, as long as you play it safe. You'll want to start getting SoB right after though, since you'll be shooting things from a distance the shotguns will need extra help. MCe isn't really necessary, but it helps conserve ammo since you'll have higher accuracy if you can see the mob.

As for the shamblers, I wouldn't recommend it while badge hunting, it will actually hold you back. Sure it'll help get a badge or two, but it will get in the way of gaining skill. If you aren't going for a badge, then I say go for it. I view it as a loophole instead of a bug, since it is consistent and I haven't seen anything ingame that says you are only supposed to pull the lever once. Despite that I won't do it for badges, since it really is unintended and it ruins the sense of accomplishment. In the end though, this is a game and the point of a game is to have fun.

I was going to say the Vampyre was good, but I looked at my mortem and it wasn't Vampyre.  I'm pretty sure I went Vampyre on AoP and it worked pretty well, but for Masochist Gold, I just went for badass and then shotty stuff.  Vampyre should be pretty doable too.

Multi-shambler is definitely a bug.  It has even been fixed.  It was silently fixed for 0.9.9.3 about 2-3 days after release.  You can redownload and copy over the new doomrl.wad.

But, hey, play the game to have fun.  I've certainly done more than my share of cheating.

Edit: Somehow I didn't realize that you were actually asking if Vampyre works at all on AoMs.  In fact, it does.

Thanks for all the advice ^^ I got the silver badge yesterday using a cateye build.

I know it was fixed, that's why I said don't judge. :) And I'm going to have to align myself with Astranger here. I don't really consider it that much of a bug, because killing the shambler can actually be quite a risky business with uncertain rewards, and a very efficient way of depleting yourself of your medpacks (not exactly the concern with this challenge...) In most of my games I only kill him once. This time I was lucky enough to get the sniper pack on my first kill, so I was able to shoot him from across the level with less than one full clip from my plasma rifle right after pulling the lever before he could really do anything about it.

Edit: Somehow I didn't realize that you were actually asking if Vampyre works at all on AoMs.  In fact, it does.

Thanks!
